Andrew's spent much of the past four years embedded in Haiti, Afghanistan, and Iraq, or wherever one finds our Marines and soldiers. From Ramadi, Fallujah, Garmsir, or north of the Khyber Pass, he's out in the field with our 0311's and 0811's. Wherever America has Marines and soldiers in the field, you'll find Andrew covering the stories of our "boots on the ground" who are taking the fight to the enemy and helping the women and children in their struggle for a better life.
But world events are more than just a series of firefights. From being one of only five journalists on the beaches in Beirut as the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit evacuated the American refugees in 2006, Andrew also covered the Salim Hamdan pre-trial hearings from Guantanamo Bay as well as the early relief operations in Haiti with 22nd M.E.U. in January 2010.
"This is not a conventional war," Alexander the Great told his troops when they pushed into southern Afghanistan, "It is unconventional. And we must fight it in an unconventional manner" Sikunder-Gul had it right, except he didn't know that one needed to cover these wars unconventionally also - and that's why I go out with the Marines.
